Summer in Chicago means Rooftop season for bars and restaurants. One place you must add to your summer bucket list is streeterville social. I mean even their name is Instagram trendy and that should tell you about the feel of this place. It is so photo-esque from its prime view of the city to the aesthetics of the venue itself. Their food and drinks are trendy and Instagram worthy but also affordable and deliciously well made. If you are looking for the perfect birthday celebration or just a night out with friends location we recommend giving them a try!

If you are visiting Chicago or simply having a stay-cation definitely look into staying at the Langham Hotel. We have worked with them on multiple occasions when we assist for weddings and the staff is always so happy and caring and that is something we highly value in a place where we are going to be staying or sleeping. They are in a prime location in the city to get several types of food or nightlife activities or you can simply head up to their roof for a night out- in. Even though this is a hotel with the design of the building and its open concept it feels like you are on a summer vacay whether you are in the room the wellness center or just the bar.

We as travelers and curious people in general love hidden gems. In chicago there are so many of these places and this is the one you NEED on your bucket list this summer. It is a rooftop venue but is casual family friendly and just fun. Life sized board games are all the rage this summer and this place has tons. Birthday Parties or general hangout events this is the place to go. We love the mix casual and quirkiness. It’s a place that you would want to make a regular occurrence at and destress after work or hang out with friends all summer. It’s warm and homey and somewhere you could make your new summer hangout spot. 

The thing we love most about summer is the fact that for some reason it’s the self declared time for you to get together with friends. While visiting Chicago and experiencing the nightlife this is the place to go.  It is a bar and restaurant but also spy themed with escape rooms and riddles. It is a new and unique experience to kick off your weekend. It is so fun all around. If you are up to the challenge check it out.
